Our company runs Windows 7 64-bit and have no option at this time to upgrade to Windows 10
That will be a problem for you going forward.
You'll need to upgrade eventually. Like Windows XP, MS will shut off all support for 7. This might be a good time to lobby for 10.
Yeah...tell me about it. Our company is large and takes forever to migrate/upgrade to anything on a global scale. Luckily Adobe CC is only for our department so we were able to implement that otherwise we would still be on Adobe CS4 if they had their way...then again, after this latest version I might prefer that!
And yes, I have our department's group in the queue for the company's Win10 pilot test which is scheduled for early next year.
Like most companies that watch their bottom line extensively, they lag on any upgrades until absolutely necessary.
Yes, we are still using MS Office 2007...finally moving to 2010! Sigh.
Oh, that's frustrating. I freelance for both a small company and a college, and the former is sooo much easier to get things done.
We are experiencing many of the same issues with 2018 and I am running Windows 10. My partner is running MAC OS Sierra Version 10.12.6 and she will not upgrade to 2018 after seeing all the issues I've been encountering. I've tried to go back to 2017 but then I encountered the Dolby issue which I can not seem to resolve at all. (why can I import MTS clips into 2018 and have sound but I can not with 2017?) I've settled with 2018 because I need to get back to work (I do wedding videography and lost a week and a half of work trying to resolve these issues), but 2018 keeps freezing in the program monitor every so often and the only solution is to restart the program. Luckily I can still save so I don't lose anything but it is very inconvenient, frustrating and time consuming to have to restart the program 4 times every hour. Is there any fix to these issues on the horizon? Is there a fix to the Dolby issues with 2017?

It is shocking how inefficient Premiere has become. Most of us, here on the forums, are running high end computers, and yet Premiere gets slower and slower with every release. I'm still suffering with import times in the MINUTES for a dozen clips or WAV files.
Adobe, please take the pedal off of the gazillion features pipeline, and, instead, bug fix and optimize. Your code base must be a mess. It's getting worse and worse. There is something very wrong with a program that takes MINUTES to import a bunch of files into a project. It's not useable.
My standard procedure with my current workflow is to start an import and come here, to the forums, to vent.
Oh, and I demanded my subscription to be free for 2 months. And I'll demand it again in two months if the import bug still exists. Everyone using this beta software should DEMAND the same. EVERYONE! Seriously, if you're here, suffering one of these project crippling bugs, you shouldn't be paying for the Creative Cloud. I'm tired of marketing that sells new updated software when I'm terrified to upgrade knowing there's a good chance my productivity will be destroyed.
Demand your refund or free months of subscription today. Please. For the benefit of everyone here. Adobe will only change if they start to feel it in the bottom line.
